  • 2 cups of cooked white rice
  • 1/2 cup of finely diced bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup of diced scallions
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Begin by combining the cooked white rice, diced bell peppers, diced scallions, grated Parmesan cheese, beaten eggs, bread
    crumbs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
  2. Using your hands, shape the mixture into small balls, about the size of a golf ball. Place them on a baking sheet lined with
    parchment paper.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a deep frying pan or pot over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot (around 350°F or 175°C), carefully
    place the rice balls into the hot oil using a slotted spoon.
  4. Fry the rice balls until they are golden brown and crispy, turning them occasionally to ensure even frying. This should take
    about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Remove the crispy fried rice balls from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  6. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce or enjoy them as they are.
